Driving Digitisation and Innovation through Partnerships

  • What sort of partnerships are needed to bridge the gap between the traditional IT-enabled healthcare institution to the truly smart, tightly-integrated institution?
  • Productivity in healthcare has been seriously challenged during the pandemic. How can out-of-the-box innovative strategies and even improvised technology applications help in increasing productivity and help healthcare organisations function to their optimal efficiency? What will productivity look like in the new normal, when the current strains have eased somewhat?
  • What are some of the lessons learned from the COVID-19 crises, and how can hospitals learn from each other on a continuous, ongoing basis? Could better technology have helped? If so, what sort of technology would ideally have been in place? If not, why not?
  • IT service delivery in mission-critical healthcare scenarios can be a matter of life and death. How can IT "get out of the way" and become an invisible, intimate part of the organisation, rather than being something to "deal with" or a pain point?
  • How can automation help in ensuring that healthcare providers have the simplest, smoothest experience in doing their day-to-day jobs? Of the entire healthcare value chain, which aspects can be automated easily, what are the easy wins in this regard?
